Code Inspection: Use collection’s count property

If a collection has a Count property (or a Length property), JetBrains Rider suggests using the property instead of the Count() method. The property works faster (to see why, read the StackOverflow answers linked in the See Also below). Such a replacement is only possible for collections that implement ICollection<T> or its derived interfaces.

For arrays, JetBrains Rider suggests replacing Count() with Length:

public int BooksCount(string[] books) { return books.Count(); }
public int BooksCount(string[] books) { return books.Length; }

For other collection types, JetBrains Rider suggests replacing Count() with Count:

public int ToysCount(IList<string> toys) { return toys.Count(); }
public int ToysCount(IList<string> toys) { return toys.Count; }
